The Buddhist Master’s Question

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

A Buddhist Master asks, “How do you know when the night has ended and the dawn has come?”  A student replies, “When I can tell a donkey apart from the hay.” Another says, “When I can see my hands clearly.” The master responds, “The night is over and the dawn has come when you look into a stranger’s eyes and instead of seeing something to judge, you see your brother or sister.”


Ya Haqq!

    Thank you all for the kind comments :) The Buddhist Master’s reply is also the reply of the Sufi Master, and is also the reply of Jesus, the son of Maryyam, who admonished us to love our neighbors as ourselves.

    Ya Haqq!
